  1. Change the oil filter more frequently. At least every 3000 km The oil is good for 20,000 km The sludge or carbon deposits is the culprit to engine failure if lubrication is compromised And yes those 'dipsticks' out there are truly 'DIP STICKS' http://lucasoil.ca/products/engine-oil-additives/pure-synthetic-oil-stabilizer
  2. Hey Tolsen Seems to me that you just found out about oil spraying this February. When did you graduate to science professor? Professor? http://clubsmartcar.com/index.php?showtopic=29087&hl=
  3. A SPANISH Teacher was explaining to her class that in Spanish, unlike English, nouns are designated as either masculine or feminine. 'House' for instance, is feminine: 'la Casa.' 'Pencil,' however, is masculine: 'el lapiz.' A student asked, 'What gender is 'computer'?' Instead of giving the answer, the teacher split the class into two groups, male and female, and asked them to decide for themselves whether computer' should be a masculine or a feminine noun. Each group was asked to give four reasons for its recommendation. The men's group decided that 'computer' should definitely be of the feminine gender ('la computadora'), because: 1.. No one but their creator understands their internal logic; 2.. The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else; 3.. Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for possible later retrieval; and 4.. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheck on accessories for it. (THIS GETS BETTER!) The women's group, however, concluded that computers should be Masculine ('el computador'), because: 1.. In order to do anything with them, you have to turn them on; 2.. They have a lot of data but still can't think for themselves; 3.. They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time they ARE the problem; and 4.. As soon as you commit to one, you realize that if you had waited a little longer, you could have gotten a better model. The women won.
  4. Yes the solenoid moves freely. What I did notice was the air filter looked like it hadn't been changed for a while. No visible light coming through when held up to the sun. I was surprised to see it that black. I've changed it and we'll see if that was the culprit.
  5. The reason I was asking about the symptoms of a plugged or partial plugged EGR is currently I'm having a problem that is doesn't seem to have any power. I have no error codes and it has always seems to smell of exhaust. No Smoke behind when driving. Yesterday when I started up to drive to work I had to use the manual shifting in order to get enough speed to travel. About an hour later after the car was sitting It drove fine. It gave me no problems for the remainder of the day. This morning same problem.No power. Had to manually shift again to get up to speed. Then after sitting ran normal again. Took the EGR out. It was moderately dirty not plugged, cleaned it out reinstalled. Everything seems fine so far. What do you think?
  6. Some have done that and it will work, but the resistive element in the feedback path of the EGR to the ECU can still wear and cause errors. The picture below is an easier to understand EGR system. The exhaust gases in the lower right are passed to the intake manifold through a butterfly valve in the EGR controlled by the ECU . externalEGR.jpg I was just reading this post to determine whether or not to eliminate my EGR system. Remove it? Purchase a emulator? 1. What are the symptoms of a plugged or partially plugged EGR? Is it lack of power? 2. What about what GRP151 said about cleaning it, leaving it connected and installing a plate over the port? 3. What does' resistive element' mean?
  7. Ha ha! C'mon Tolsen you mean you never heard of oil spraying your car!! It is so common here in salt country. Toronto that is, its the only way to maintain your electrical connections and to reduce metal corrosion (rust) of vital components such as hydraulic and cable brake lines, sub frames, shocks, reluctor rings etc. http://www.toronto.com/others/regs-chemical-oil-spray-rustproofing-two-stage-system/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2J5B5U-HKpE
  8. Thanks CANMAN your explanation makes sense. I thank you Tolsen but I do not understand your language regarding brake pipes? Remember to release brake pipes and ABS cables from plastic clip on left side door sill.
  9. I'm trying to remove the hand brake ( parking brake) not sure what the correct name is, so as to, lower the engine to replace the alternator. I have the 4 long cradle bolts to assist the lowering but I cannot see how to disassemble the main hand brake cable from the 2 drum cables. I read something about turning a disk? or cup to release it but I could not see what part is referred to. Can someone help? Thanks
  10. So what happened? Was it the fuel filter?
  11. I like the white look! Has that "Regal sexy" look if you know what I mean.
  12. I think you need a set of Toyo GSi-5 tires! Here's a great deal on kijiji http://www.kijiji.ca/v-view-details.html?requestSource=b&adId=1139001069 I have them on my car and its like having 4 wheel drive! Amazing control!!!
  13. Brilliant ! Absolutely brilliant! Just repaired mine the same way!
  14. Well I was able to clean the contacts on the starter motor and it now turns over! Hooray! But it will not start I have a new battery in it so it turns over quite nicely. I loosened the fuel line at the CDi and fuel comes out when I turn on the key. It sputters a tiny bit as if only one fuel injector is working and then the motor stops turning over (if that makes any sense). I've read that testing the injectors is quite costly. My friend has a working diesel that has offered to try his injectors to see if that would determine the problem. He suggested replacing the fuel filter first and flushing out the fuel line before trying to start the motor in case contamination might plug up his injectors. Any suggestions???
